      SEC Puts Mutual Fund Intermediary Fees under the Microscope

      As widely discussed this conference season and in recent publications, the SEC has been "fact finding" the past few months regarding intermediary fees paid by fund companies and their advisers. Over the past 10 years, distribution and shareholder servicing fee structures have become increasingly costly and, more importantly, complex in ways that make 12b-1 Plans obsolete. In addition, in the past three years, there has been a dramatic shift from network to omnibus accounts, which further complicates fee structures on different classes.
